Washington, D.C. dazzles at dusk and dark: District nights (VIDEO)

The beauty of Washington, D.C. is often most spectacular in the fiery hues of sunset and when our historic landmarks glow before a dramatic night sky. Multimedia artist Andrew Geraci masterfully captured a series of these moments in a brilliant compilation of time lapse photography.

“This piece is all about DC at dusk and night -- concentrating on the monuments and historial buildings on the mall,” wrote Geraci. “During the making of this time-lapse, I was hassled/stopped 27 times by DC police and received 5 parking tickets. That’s pretty much how it goes in DC.”

Geraci said filming the sunsets took almost three months.

“DC weather isn’t always the best,” he wrote.
